HI, I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question. Ok, this could be an issue in the data communication lines. Does your laptop software do BMW diagnostic testing? And are there any actual fault codes
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
hi my laptop is bmw specific gt1 dis and inpa progman i havent got any codes as i cant communicate with the abs ecu module which has been tested and is working normally so if i could communicate with the abs ecu module i could then go on to diagnose a wheel speed sensor or similar
now i dont know if this is related but i do have a vtg transfer box is which states calibration not carried out i go through the process on the laptop which stores a code for the calibration of 54c4 then it goes through the process and states resistor will be reset in next stage was is set to invalid i click yes then it says transfer case will be reset in next stage and it states reset but couldnt be completed without other issues
i also have my air suspension pump disconnected as this has an issue so am wandering whether they all rely on each other to work so i can get rid of the abs 4x4 and handbrake symbol of my dash
